8:15 am
supposed to be making laws and being respected imposes laws that are not lawful. i think our state is california gone wild. >> i think certainly the spending and the government that we have in sacramento doesn't properly represent the interest of the people in southern, spurtly their spending habits. whether or not that's going to happen, probably not. >> now, this is a possibility that they are discussing right now. it's actually been proposed before, would you believe? it was back in the 1970s where there was talk of splitting california in half, east and west, and then in 1982, one politician wanted to split the state up three ways. and then a man arrested flying with a fake boarding pass caused one man problems. it ruined a vacation. >> i need to be in nassau,
8:16 am
bahamas on the beach right now. they abused their authority. >> in a round about way, he also blames this man. >> i don't look anything like this guy. >> he got on a plane headed for a much-needed holiday vacation, and custom agents arrived and hauled him away and took him to a room. >> we got the wrong guy, i don't care what you guys do, put him on a truck or whatever, but get him back on the plane. >> lindsay says an agent mistakenly gave him this picture of the suspect, and the agents took lindsay back to the plane, and the doors were closed so lindsay missed the only airtransflight going out.
8:17 am
>> one of the agents told me i better calm down, and how can i do that when they ruined my vacation. >> somebody needs to be disciplined for this type of behavior. >> let's see a piece of video now. you don't see this every day. looks like something out of a movie. this is in thailand. it's real. that's a guy in the bomb disposal unit, and the bomb goes off, but here is the thing. look at him. he gets right up and walks away. yes. apparently the suits that they wear are effective. they do work. now police say the bomb in the car was actually detonated by somebody who likely was nearby, so they may have just waited to see this bomb explosion expert walk-up to it and then set it off. amazingly, and you can see from a different angle, the bomb goes off and blows him back, and he gets right up and walks away.
8:18 am
amazing to see. also, another piece of video here. politics, and we know it could be a tough sport sometimes, but this is in the philippines, where the mayor of this particular city just wales on a guy, repeatedly punching a court officer when he ignored her appeal to rebuild a town. the judge asked for a delay of two hours so she could amean yat tensions between the scotters and the police, but when the court office was not going along with it, she took things into her own fists. we're going inside a $70 million wedding. we have the details of the royal wedding of monaco's prince albert's. potential bad news for the bride already. stay here for that. places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch,

8:22 am
1200's by a monk. for 700 years they have been living in the beautiful space. it was a somber ceremony. beautiful entertainment. >> you mentioned this earlier, and it didn't look like a festive and happy joy us occasion. what was going on? >> well, it was fairly somber. there was unbelievable entertainment. you had italian tenor, and rene fleming, and they had a woman calling a click song. so let's go to hear her singing -- >> oh, you have some of it for us. let's hear it. >> ♪
8:23 am
>> can you do that? >> i cannot do that. >> this is the celebration of her south african roots. >> this is the one-time people seemed to jump up and get energy it into? >> yeah, everybody seems to get into the vibe. celebrating the fact that the bride, although born in zimbabwe, grew up in south africa, and she met albert in 2000 at the olympics. she was an olympian backstroke simmer, so they have sports in common. >> i don't want to be the downer here. we know there is history in monaco. there is bad luck, really, with some of the royal couples there, but this one in particular, you and i talked about, there were rumors that she was possibly a runaway bride, and she learned something right before the wedding, and they knocked that
8:24 am
down, but now what do we know? >> yesterday, there were reports that there was a third illegitimate child from albert, so who knows? is it true or isn't it? will our beautiful, beautiful fairy tale princess have to deal with all kinds of other obstacles, and will that curse be upon her? >> hope not. so far so good. and it was a beautiful day yesterday. >> official news of a third paternity suit in monaco. >> yeah, the first two, it was public knowledge. but now, we will see. i hate to end on a low note. it was such a beautiful ceremony. we're 24 minutes past the hour. you know that password to your computer? is it a password? we'll tell you why it's a bad idea. we'll show you how to come up with a stronger password.
8:25 am
8:26 am
well, computer hackers have made it into some big companies recently, like sony, citigroup, and a lot of customer's private passwords went public, but i asked our digital expert for tips on how to make computer passwords harder to hack. >> the longer the password, it's actually better. this is really important. so much identity theft can happen so easily from having the wrong password. researchers found they could crack an eight-character password in eight hours, but for
8:27 am
a 12 password, it would take many years. so go with a 10-character password or more to be safe. >> a lot of things. some of us use letters and numbers. bad idea? >> yeah, because there is only 26 letters in the alphabet, and numbers, you can use it all the way up to 9, and then 0, so use numbers letters and symbols, and upper and lower case, and that matters when doing a password. you have to make it so hard that basically hackers cannot use software to crack that code. the more complexity you put into the password, the harder it becomes. >> yeah, and the harder it's to remember. we have bank accounts, and all this stuff at work and hot mail and e-mail, and credit cards online, bill pay, and how are we
8:28 am
supposed to keep up with the passwords? >> one way to do it is to create sentences or phrases that are similar but different for different services. you may say i love my son, five times his birthday. and take that same phrase and have variations of it for different accounts. that way it's not the same exact password, but makes it easier for you to remember long term. >> we're not going to remember that. you know how many things you log into. you will not remember all these unless you write them down somewhere. can we keep a file somewhere or keep it in our wallet, but come on, you will not remember all that stuff? >> yes, you can remember it, if you memorize -- >> stop it. >> apparently you don't have
8:29 am
enough ram memory in your brain, so flush some stuff out. i would not suggest writing these down, and i know people that do that. you can create what is called a digital wallet. there is k-e-e pass. if you want to to be safe, i would not put a document -- somebody put a document on their computer and called it the password document. that's not smart. >> i have one of those. i am logged on to five different things at work, and there are 15 to 20 at home. that's a lot of words. there's a lot of upper case and lower case, and you're saying
8:30 am
don't write them down. never ever use the same password for all these things. >> because, t. j., you are only as strong as your weakest link. if your e-mail or, like sony play station, you get hit they would have the same access to log into your bank account. >> join us every cnn saturday morning. now our expert checks out the latest technology. on this holiday weekend, what would you say -- you see a plane flying in the sky over a fourth of july picnic and a banner going behind it behind it saying, god less america, not got bless america, but got less america, and we will talk to a man that wants that to happen on the fourth. stay here. ♪

8:34 am
no. to spread their message, they are hiring planes that read a message, god-less in america, and atheist is patriotic. pilots in many states are refusing to carry the banners. joining me now to talk about this campaign is rick winggrove. he is the state director for american atheists. we appreciate you being here. let's start with the base sxikz make sure people have it right. what we're talking about, people don't believe in god, do we have that right? >> that's the short answer, yes. >> we'll stick with that one this morning. so why the campaign? why is it necessary? why did you think it was important to try and get this message out on the fourth of july? >> well, it's an important american holiday. it's kind of a coming out party
8:35 am
for us, and we want people to know that about 45 to 40 million americans are atheists, and we want to use this event to disspell mythology. many atheists are veterans, including ourself. our country is not a christian nation, and -- >> do you really think that people, when they hear atheist they kind of -- i wouldn't say automatically, but still in your mind that equates for them that you're not patriotic. do you get that response from people? >> we do get some of that, yes. part of it has to do with the pledge of allegiance. when the words "under god" were inserted, it became a christian
8:36 am
pledge. then we are excluded. and that is seen to be less patriotic. >> now, people have their own religious beliefs, very strong, and some would take that as offensive, like, okay, you want to believe what you want to believe, that's fine, but why god-less america? >> it's just an introduction to the fact that there are millions, tens of millions of americans who are atheists who do not believe in deities of any kind. and the banners, there are two banners, there's the got-less america, and then there is atheistism. >> do you want people to come
8:37 am
over to your side, or do you simply want to dispel some of the rumors and myths and want to make sure your atheists are patriotic, or do you want to convert them, if you will? >> we're not trying to convert anybody. we're fine with freedom of reflinlgen. it's the religions not for freedom of religion. and chris anti-and islam and any other religion, most of them want belief. our system is more consistent with the constitution. >> and last thing, i know you have run into resistance. you tried, at least, to get people in all 50 states to fly the banners with you, but that has not been the case. tell me what your numbers are and what some of the responses
8:38 am
have been? >> we are flying in 26 or 25 states. we had a lot of refusals in half of the states. pilots refuse to fly the banners, to take our money, and some cited the fear of being shot at and some cited the fear of being divorced if they flew our message. >> we don't want that either, do we. thank you for take the time. something interesting that got a lot of people talking around the news room and viewers as well have been talking about it. we appreciate you taking the time, and you enjoy the fourth. >> thank you, t. j. you, too. >> if you want to leave a comment on this story, go to another state has legalized same-sex unions. this is rhode island this time. they legalized civil unions. it was signed into law yesterday. it will give same-sex couples,

8:43 am
obviously we want to know whether he has seen anything there that changes his mind. obviously, john mccain, his bay lou wick has been foreign policy. he has been a strong supporter of u.s. action in libya, and he thinks it should have been more aggressive and we want to talk about that as well. >> can't let you go without talking presidential politics. a lot came out of the president's press conference last week and how he went at democrats and republicans, saying hey, even my kids know when to get their work done. how is this play sng he got the senate to stick around and not take a full fourth of july holiday? >> he did, but the question is are they going to get anything done? the answer is probably not concerning the debt ceiling is concerned. they were not that happy. and there were democrats that i talked to over the course of the week that thought it was a tiny bit of lecturing. i can assure you that one branch
8:44 am
of government on one end of pennsylvania avenue does not like to be lectured to by the white house, but it did make them stay in, and maybe this will give um of those trying to work out a deal on the debt ceiling a little more time to try and come up with an answer. but they are running out of time that august 2nd, the treasury has said again, reiterated, midnight we turn into pumpkins because that's the time they will not be able to pay some of their bills. republicans don't actually totally believe that. they think it's artificial. but nonetheless, that's what is going on. >> happy fourth to you. and she will have a special segment on making it in america. talking about the american dream. candy, coming your way, just about 15 minutes, right here on cnn, 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific time. the white house released

team, and it's a special tonight. nfl camp usually starts in july, this month, but nfl players and owners not talking to each other. the lockout could hurt team readiness, and wondering why the two cannot make this happen. here is our joe johns. >> reporter: nearly four months into the nfl lockout and no deal in place as owners and players argue over how to split up $9 billion in annual revenue. >> that's ridiculous. >> greed. >> pathetic. >> reporter: james brown, a natalie known nfl sportscaster offers his take. >> i would like to think that prudent heads will prevail in coming up with something that is effectively is a win-win situation and doesn't alienate your fan base. >> when you look at folks who are dealing with day-to-day issues being cut back to 90% and

win-lose. i don't. >> i think both sides should just end it and get back to what they do. >> reporter: as for the product on the field -- >> i think the product will suffer is training camps are delayed. and one of the biggest concerns are injuries. if a deal is not reached soon, the regular season will be in jeopardy, and stadiums like this one would go empty, meaningless revenue, which is something nobody wants. >> thank you to joe johns. let's say hello to reynolds wolf. the fourth of july forecast will cooperate for most, right? >> you have family togetherness and a chance to have burned up food, and let's be honest, everybody tries to do the best at barbecuing, but there is the family member that scorches it, but throw on barbecue saws and a smile and enjoy the fireworks. and here is the home of the byu
